The Nvidia RTX 3070 is one of the best graphics cards of all time, and they can be hard to come by, let alone at a discounted price. But, if you don’t mind setting yourself up with one in a PC, then here’s your chance to snag one for less.

Dell is offering 20% off its entire eBay store, and we think some of the best discounts you can get your hands on are on its RTX 3070-equipped PCs. We’ve highlighted our top picks below, including a G series gaming rig and an XPS desktop. To save, you’ll need the code PLLED20.

That’s not all though, the always-popular Nintendo Switch has now been discounted in its Mario Red and Blue Edition, a version which honours Mario’s iconic colours. Scroll down to find out where you can pick it up with a sweet discount.
